Her side: Pamela Anderson has seized control of her ‘own life story’ in a documentary about her life dropping on Netflix on January 31

The Netflix documentary is incidentally scheduled to bow the same day as her tell-all memoir Love, Pamela, published by Harper Collins and Dey Street Books.

‘I didn’t sleep last night at all,’ Pamela says early in the documentary trailer against clips of the sizzling sensation warming herself by a bonfire.

She immediately confronts the renewed public scrutiny on her sex tape, which she made with her first husband Tommy Lee of Motley Crue fame.

The story of the tape was recently dramatized on television in a miniseries called Pam And Tommy starring Lily James and I, Tonya heartthrob Sebastian Stan.

In the trailer, without mentioning the miniseries by name, Pamela hints at her feelings about her sex tape reentering the public eye.

‘I blocked that stolen tape out of my life in order to survive, and now that it’s all coming up again, I feel sick,’ she said.

Pamela confessed that she did not consider herself to have received ‘a lot of respect’ over the course of her career as a sex symbol.

A snatch of footage played in which Ruby Wax asked her: ‘Did you want to be a serious actress?’ and Pamela replied: ‘I am a serious actress!’ eliciting a laugh.

In another glimpse of her public image, she was briefly seen playing in her guest-role as the gorgeous bimbo Heather Biblow on The Nanny starring Fran Drescher.

‘I had to make a career out of the pieces left, but I’m not the damsel in distress,’ Pamela said in voiceover. ‘I put myself in crazy situations and survived them.’

Footage danced across the screen of Pamela’s various wacky professional ventures, including what appeared to be one of her practices for Celebrity Boxing.

She also subjected herself to a Comedy Central Roast and entered the cast of Chicago on Broadway, both of which gigs briefly appear in the trailer.

Pamela, who in recent years has been known for her friendship with Julian Assange, is also seen being interviewed by Jay Leno on late-night TV.

The much-married pinup, who has racked up six failed marriages over a span of five ex-husbands, also shed some light on her checkered love life.

‘Some men think: “Oh, she’s a Playboy thing, or the sexual person,” and they hate you for being something else,’ she said over a montage of her girlie mag covers.

In another telling flash of footage, Pamela is seen telling Piers Morgan on television of her love life: ‘One man can’t do it all.’

Against what appears to be rehearsal footage for Chicago, Pamela says: ‘You have to be brave, and you gotta use what you got.’

As the trailer for her upcoming documentary draws to a closer, Pamela wonders aloud: ‘Why can’t we be the heroes of our own life story?’

Near the end of the trailer, she jokes in a confessional: ‘Maybe I just do all the interviews naked. There’s no mystery here!’ 

Her upcoming documentary may be an attempt by Pamela to recapture control of her image after her portrayal in Pam And Tommy.

An Entertainment Tonight source claimed that Pam And Tommy ‘has been very painful for Pamela Anderson and for anyone that loves her. It is shocking that this series is allowed to happen without her approval.’

The insider said Pamela ‘feels so violated to this day’ by the burglary of the sex tape and said the show ‘brings back a very painful time for her.

Pamela’s friend Courtney Love blasted the show as ‘vile’ and ‘outrageous,’ writing on social media: ‘My heart goes out to Pammy further causing her complex trauma.’

She spared a few choice words for the leading lady of the show, adding: ‘And shame on Lily James whoever the f*** she is.’

Meanwhile Pamela told that her turn in Chicago ‘feels like another step closer to taking my power back and really taking it back.’

The swimsuit icon added: ‘It’s very empowering. And it does feel I’m being supported. I’m being rooted for, that’s a new feeling for me. I don’t want to let anybody down, but I also really don’t want to let myself down.’
